Java 8 is one of the largest upgrades to the popular language and framework in over a decade. This talk will detail several new key features of Java 8 that can help make programs easier to read, write, and maintain. Java 8 comes with many features, especially related to collection libraries. We will cover such new features as Lambda Expressions, the Stream API, enhanced interfaces, and more.
